Ranunculus are one of my favorite spring flowers. They're so generous with their beauty and the name - can you beat the name? I love the word ranunculus: it sounds like a kind of cloud, or a nemesis. Isn't is a perfect nemesis name? Just to test it out, try shaking your fist at the sky (maybe at a ranunculus cloud) and shouting RANUNCULUUUUUUUUUUUUUUS!  See what I mean?


Despite the perfect-for-a-nemesis quality of the name, I love the reality of the situation. I mean, look at these! They look like a hybrid peony/rose/poppy/tissue paper flower.


A bunch of them together? The best! It's like a spring petal party happening right the hell now.

I took these photos at the garden center and I can't remember the name of this flower. Whatever it is, it's too pretty to leave behind, so here it is.
